Art Contest!

Super Hero Art Contest • Kids, bring your artwork to the Children’s Room by Friday July 3 Wednesday, July 15. Your creations will be displayed through July, and judged in five categories: ages 0-5, ages 6-8, ages 9-11, ages 12-14, and ages 15-17. Submissions must be your own work, in good taste, and nicely displayed in a frame — or on a board, if 3D, and must include an entry form (available at the Children’s desk). Prizes will be awarded at our Super Hero Delight program on August 3.

Not All Heroes Wear Capes and Masks

 This summer we will learn about different kinds of heroes. You will have plenty of opportunities to dress as superheroes, explore your own superpowers, watch lots of movies! And don’t forget the  Superhero Delight ice cream party on August 3!
